What our team say

We think it is important to understand what it is like working at Plus Accounting and how working here can help you acheive your career goals, so we asked two members of the team about their experience;

Luke Thomas, Director

“I joined Plus Accounting in 2008 as a client portfolio manager and one of the main reasons for joining was that my now co-directors offered me the opportunity to progress my career with Plus Accounting. Following a successful period of training and mentoring from Paul Feist & Peter Hedgethorne, together with the development of my own client portfolio, I was promoted to director in 2014. Plus Accounting is an excellent place to work, learn and develop your career. Due to the nature of how we work, at Plus Accounting you have an opportunity to develop a wide range of skills in addition to your accounting & tax expertise such as marketing, strategy, presenting, networking & leadership.”

Emma Hardwick, Manager

‘’When I left college I really didn’t know what career path to take. With a keen eye for numbers I decided to look into becoming an accountant. I joined Plus Accounting in June 2008 as a trainee accounting technician and started my journey.

Three years later in 2011, I passed my AAT and with the support and guidance from the team at Plus Accounting I decided to continue my training to be a chartered certified accountant. It wasn’t easy as I took the option to self-study, but with dedication, support from colleagues and other team members completing the same qualification route I qualified in 2015.

Following this successful period of training I was promoted to Assistant Manager in April 2015 and subsequently a Manager in April 2017. I have enjoyed working at Plus Accounting over the last 10 years, they have shown me how to accomplish my goals with a true commitment to helping me on my career path.

So far my skill set has resulted in gaining experience in various areas of accounting and finance. From accounting, tax, book-keeping and vat, to audit, business advice and system controls. I look forward to embracing the new knowledge I will learn over the coming years on my journey here at Plus Accounting and the new experiences that come with it!”
